bugging out

I am in Los Angeles -- awaiting my flight to Manzanillo.

I should be letting you know about my Yucatan trip in general.  But I could not pass up the opportunity to share this photograph.

Islagringo snapped it in the Tikul plaza.  It looks as if it could be the insignia of a colonel in the El Salvador Air Force.  But it is just the katydid I wrote about in angel on my shoulder.  My shoulder.  My insect.

A nice omen for a good flying day.

It's on your shoulder??? How funny is that! I can't wait to see your pics and hear all about your trip.

Yup. And I thought I was clever until I read this: " Large tettigoniids can inflict a painful bite or pinch if handled but seldom break the skin." Just another adventure.
